    Displaying the disk free space with Diskpart


    Hi

    Starting the command prompt from the Windows 10 v1703 DVD, how do I display the disk free space to create other partitions using Diskpart utility?

    Thanks

    Bye

    I don`t think Diskpart will show you free space, just the disks in your system and any partitions on those disks. If there`s a command to list free space, please post it.

    You`d have to go into windows and look at Disk Management, then I suggest Partition Wizard to manage your partitions.

    I highly recommend making and using a Partition Wizard Boot CD to work with partitions, it`s so easy to use and a great tool to have.

    The Boot CD is not free anymore with Partition Wizard`s latest version 10.2, but you can download version 9.1 from here. You simply download the Iso file, then burn to CD. Then boot from the cd to look at your drives and any partitions on those drives, and it will show you the used and unused amount on any partitions.

    @Caledon Ken's reply was the correct answer to the specific question asked in the OP. Below, my disk 1 has 10 GB of free space I could create a partition in. There is a difference in free space on the disk that can be used to create a partition in, and free space inside partitions not used by the file system. The OP asked about free space on a disk that can be used to create a partition.

    For anyone who still needs this you can run diskpart > list volume > select volume x (x is the number ie select volume 0)
    Once volume is selected you can then run detail vol which provides total space and available space on the volume
